Are you concerned that Neil Gorsuch belongs to a far-left church?



President Obama was criticized by Republicans, and rightly so I believe, for attending a church lead by Jeremiah Wright, who repeatedly criticized the United States for being, in his own opinion, an evil terrorist nation. People wondered, how could Obama sit through sermons like that, year after year? Didn't that mean that at the very least Obama didn't have any serious problems with what Wright was saying?

Well, we saw after eight years of Obama that that was probably true, that Obama saw America in a bad light. That's why he kept trying to "fundamentally transform" it.

But what about Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch? He belongs to a far-left church that embraces gay marriage, gun control, and

He belongs to St. John’s Episcopal Church in Boulder, Colo., the Episcopal diocese of Colorado confirmed on Wednesday. Church bulletins show that the judge has been an usher three times in recent months. His wife Louise frequently leads the intercessory prayer and reads the weekly Scripture at Sunday services, and his daughters assist in ceremonial duties during church services as acolytes.

The first word that St. John’s uses to describe itself on its website and Facebook page is “inclusive,” and the church is led by a female rector. On its website, the church encourages members to write letters to Congress asking for actions addressing climate change.

That's not all. Its website also calls for members to lobby their congressmen for more gun control.

And more:

Rev. Susan Springer has said she is pro-gay marriage and offers blessings to same-sex couples

The church's Rev. Ted Howard also signed a letter slamming the 'disrespectful rhetoric' directed at Islam as Trump floated a ban on Muslim immigrants

Church authorities also appear to be strongly in favor of environmental initiatives and added solar panels to the roof because of 'climate crisis'

As an Episcopalian, it's not like Gorsuch didn't have other choices:

A 2004 article in the journal Anglican and Episcopal History examined the two Episcopal churches in Boulder. At the time, the writer described St. John’s as the older and more traditional church building, but the more theologically and politically liberal of the two. The churches diverged on the subject of homosexuality, the article said: the other church, St. Aidan’s, underlined the word “traditional” on its website while St. John’s added the words “AIDS-aware” to indicate its welcome to LGBT people.

So what does this really tell us about Gorsuch? We don't really know. Perhaps he liked the church and simply disregarded its politics. Though I would think that a constitutionalist might find the repeated emphasis on "rights" of refugees and "rights" to gay marriage to be ridiculous if not unpleasant to repeatedly listen to.

That's why I wonder if Gorsuch may be sympathetic to some of these causes. That can have an impact when he is on the court and ruling on matters such as gay marriage or global warming regulations or increased vetting of people from Muslim countries.

I think, legitimately, if Reverend Wright's comments made you put a question mark by Obama, the politics of St. John's Episcopal Church might make you do the same with Neil Gorsuch.

Which is better, a president who criticizes the police, or Nordstrom's?


President Trump is being criticized for making critical comments of Nordstrom's, which just dropped his daughter's product lines. Nordstrom claims they are dropping her products due to economic reasons, but it is a big coincidence that Nordstrom, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and Neiman Marcus and other retailers are dropping Trump products just as President Trump took office. The fact is that Nordstrom's and other stores fears pressure from the Left for selling Trump branded products and so are proactively caving in to pressure. One wonders if President Obama had sold an Obama branded marijuana cigarette, if stores in California and Colorado would be as quick to drop his product line when he became president. Probably not.

Trump should disregard clearly unconstitutional court orders


The federal courts are making a power grab early in President Trump's term. Trump's executive order, a temporary entry ban from seven dangerous countries, was modest in scope, and had ample precedent: Obama had temporarily stopped immigration from Iraq, and Jimmy Carter from Iran. Historically the President has been given a very wide latitude when it comes to matters of national security, and the decision of who to let into our country is clearly a national security matter.
